    had the same feeling too from other drivers sounds like if they like you will fatten you up if they hate you they will make you regret choosing them. Really no different than a dispatcher. if you butt heads with your dispatcher or driver manager, they might kill your runs, was no different when I left swift I liked my First dm when I switched due to different division I starved which is why I left

    Also,Walmart does have hazmat, they have an auto section, one example. if you can't figure out what that means IDK

    Trucks aren't dispatched by their dc. The dispatching system works from central locations away from dcs. All they pretty much see is a truck number and an amount of available hours. You may get to speak with someone from the operations center but rarely will you meet someone. There is no better or worse dispatches because operations favors one driver over another.

    Seems weird. So i could live in Jacksonville fl and work in maine for up to 90 days before I have to move and change address to within 250 miles. Sounds dangerously familiar....

    well they don't know where you live tech you could just use a PO box, a storage unit until you make better arrangements

    i saw him the other night cracking on wm. he was on a late night show. get your money and move on. i really dont thank wm is going to allow you to travel each week like that. i would thank in 90 days you have to have a perm address with in 250. but you would have to have temp housing or perm housing to work from the start.

    you have to have a real physical address here. also you can not have a cheap phone carrier. has to be one that you can get call and text logs in 48 hours. after 30 days of no call and text log you are fired. this is if you have a accident. but you have 48 hours to show the last 24 hours, after 48 hours of no proof. you go on no dispatch mode. you will be that way until you show proof. after 30 days of no proof, then bye bye
